The Hegen Teat
1. Mimics The Mother’s Breast
Velvety soft, elliptical shaped teat closely mimics the natural breast of mothers to promote natural latch-on for babies. This minimises nipple confusion, making it easier to combine breast and bottle feeding.
2. Prevents Colic
Air venting bypasses the milk to prevent aeration, minimising the oxidation of precious nutrients. This reduces excessive air intake, safeguarding your baby from tummy upsets.
Asymmetrical teat for upright feeding
Hegen’s super soft teats are asymmetrical and off-centre to allow for a natural upright feeding position at a 20 degrees tilt, similar to nursing from the breast. This minimises the tilt that conventional baby bottles require, reducing the risk of milk back-flow which may cause mid-ear complications.
Know when to upsize your teat
An indication of progress to the next teat flow can be observed through a baby’s body language and feeding behaviour (examples can be found below).
Do consult a healthcare professional if you require more assistance in identifying the right teat flow for your child.
